Main objectives of the Workshop

This workshop aims to provide a comprehensive theoretical and hands on practical experience on LaTeX and MATLAB to the beginners.


LaTeX is a document preparation system for high-quality typesetting, which is preferably used for technical/scientific papers writing for journals by researchers, engineers and mathematicians at large. The typesetting system offers programmable writing features and extensive facilities for automating most aspects of typesetting . Some useful features of LaTeX are:

  • Typesetting  of  journal articles, technical reports, thesis, books, and slide presentations.
  • Control over large documents containing sectioning, cross-references, tables and figures.
  •  Typesetting of complex mathematical formulae.
  • Advanced typesetting of mathematics with AMS-LaTeX.
  • Automatic generation of table of contents, bibliographies and indexes.

MATLAB is one of the most popular software for quantitative analysis. It integrates computation, visualization, and programming in an easy-to-use environment where problems and solutions are expressed in familiar mathematical notations. Typical uses include:
